The camping program offers youth the opportunity to hike, swim, canoe, boat, fish, make crafts, attend dances and campfires, sing songs, and participate in many other fun activities. There are also special programs and guest speakers. The camp has a permanent staff consisting of a camp manager, nurse, lifeguards, program directors and cooks.
